The first amendment to the Constitution states that we have the right to assemble, to speak our minds and our beliefs, and to worship as we choose. It doesn't give us those rights, doesn't grant us those rights. We are born with those rights. The government is forbidden from infringing upon those rights. All government, federal, state, and local.
This is an egregious example of government infringing upon the first amendment rights of a whole group, who happens to peaceably assemble in the homes of its members to study the Bible.
From persecution we came, to persecution we are returning.
And people wonder what's wrong with the world today.
